Barabbas, or Fefus which
is called CHRIST? ([Mr.]
for he KNEW that the Chief
Priests had DELIVERED him
for ENVY) [M] When he
was fet down on the Judg-
ment-feat, his Wife fent unto
him, faying, Have thou no-
thing to do with that JUST
MAN: for I have SUFFER
ED many Things this Day
in a DREAM becaufe of him.
But the Chief Priefts and
Elders perfwaded and [Mr.]
moved [M] the Multitude,
[Mr.] that he fhould rather
releafe Barabbas, and DE-
STROY Jefus. The Gover-
nour answered and faid un-
to them, Whether of the

cried out all at once, faying,
Away with this Man, and
releafe unto us Barabbas.
Pilate therefore willing to

2 Tim. i. 9. Who hath SAVED us, and called us with an HOLY Calling, not according to our Works, but according to his own Purpose and Grace, which was given us in Chrift Jefus, before the World began,

10. But is now made manifest by Chrift, who hath abolished Death, the Appearing of our Saviour Jefus and hath brought LIFE and IMMORTALITY TO LIGHT through the Gospel.

1 Pet. i. 18. Forafmuch as ye
know that ye were not redeemed

with corruptible Things, as Silver
and Gold, from your VAIN Con-
verfation, received by Tradition
from your Fathers;

19. But with the precious BLOOD
of CHRIST, as of a Lamb without
Blemish and without Spot:

20. Who verily was fore-ordained before the Foundation of the World, but was MANIFEST in thefe laft Times for you;

21. Who by him do believe in God that raised him up from the DEAD, and gave him Glory, that your FAITH and HOPE might be in God.

I will therefore CHASTISE
him, and let him go. [M.]
But they CRIED out [Mr.]
the more exceedingly, [M]
Let him be CRUCIFIED ;
[Mr.] CRUCIFY him. [7]
Then cried they all again,
faying, Not this MAN, but
Barabbas. Now Barabbas
was a ROBBER, [L.] who
for a certain Sedition made
in the City, and for MUR-
DER, was caft into Prifon.
And they were INSTANT
with loud Voices, requiring
that he might be CRUCIFI-
ED: And the Voices of them,
and of the CHIEF PRIESTS
prevailed. [7] Then Pi-
Late therefore took Jefus,
and SCOURGED him. [M]
Then the Soldiers of the
Governour took Jefus into
the Common Hall, [Mr.]
called Prætorium, [M.] and
gathered, [Mr.] and called
together [M] unto him the
whole BAND of Soldiers, and
they STRIPPED him, and
put on him a PURPLE Robe.
Mr.J And they clothed him
with Purple, and platted a
it about his [M] HEAD, and
a REED in his right Hand;
and they bowed the Knee
before him, and MOCKED
him, [Mr.] and began to fa-
lute him, [M] faying, [Mr.]
HAIL KING of the Jews:

with their HANDS; [M]
and they SPIT upon

Chap. ii. 21. For even hereunto were ye called; because Chrift alfo fuffered for us, leaving us an Example, that ye fhould follow his Steps:

22. Who did no SIN, neither

was GUILE found in his Mouth:

23. Who when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he fuffer, ed, he threatned not; but coMMITTED himself to him that judgeth righteously:

24. Who his own felf bare onr SINS in his own BODY on the Tree, that we being dead to SIN, should live unto Righteoufnefs: by whofe STRIPES ye were HEALED.

25. For ye were as Sheep going aftray, but are now returned unto the SHEPHERD and BISHOP of your Souls.

Chap. iii. 18. For Chrift alfo hath once fuffered for SINS, the JUST for the UNJUST (that he might bring us to God) being put to Death in the FLESH, but quickned by the SPIRIT:

Chap. iv. 1. Forasmuch then a Chrift hath fuffered for us in the Flefh, arm your felves likewife with the fame Mind: For he that hath fuffered in the Flefh, hath ceafed from SIN;

and SMOTE him on the HEAD with a Reed, and bowing their Knees, worfhipped him. [7] Pilate therefore went forth again, and faith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to that you, ye may KNOW that I find no FAULT in him. Then came Fefus forth, wearing the CROWN of THORNS, and the PURPLE ROBE. And Pilate faith unto them, Behold the Man. When the Chief Priests therefore and Officers faw him, they CRIED out, faying, CRUCIFY him, CRUCIFY him. Pilate faith unto them, Take ye him, and CRUCIFY him, for I find no FAULT in him. The Jerus answered him, We have a LAW, and by our Law he ought to DIE, because he made himself the Son of GOD. When Pilate therefore heard that SAYING, he was the more AFRAID : and went again into the Judgment - Hall, and faith unto Jefus, WHENCE art thou? But Jefus gave him no ANSWER. Then faith Pilate unto him, Speakeft thou not unto me? Knoweft thou not that I have Power to CRUCIFY thee, and have PoWER to release thee? Fefus answered, Thou couldst have no PoWER at all against me, except it were given thee from ABOVE : Therefore he that delivered me unto thee, hath the greater SIN. And from thenceforth Pilate fought to RELEASE him but the Jews cried out, faying, If thou let this Man go, thou art not Cefar's Friend: Whofoever maketh himfelf a King, fpeaketh against Cefar. When Pilate therefore heard that Saying, he brought Jefus forth, and fat down in the Judgment-feat, in a Place that is called the PAVEMENT, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. And it was the Preparation of the Paffover, and about the fixth Hour: And he faith unto the Jews, Behold your King. But they cried out, Away with him, AWAY with him, CRUCIFY him, Pilate faith unto them, Shall I crucify your

your King? The Chief Priests answered, We have no King but Cefar. [M.] When Pilate faw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a Tumult was made, he took WATER, and wafhed his Hands before the Multitude, faying, I am INNOCENT of the BLOOD of this JUST Perfon: See ye to it. Then answered all the People, and faid, His BLOOD be on us, and on our Children. Then [Mr.] Pilate, willing to content the People, [L.] gave SENTENCE that it fhould be as they required. And he releafed unto them [Mr.] Barabbas, [Ĺ.] him that for Sedition and Murder was caft into Prifon, whom they had defired [M.] And when he had fcourged Jefus, he delivered him [L.] to their Will, [M] to be CRUCIFIED.



CHRIST is brought out of the City of Jerufalem, to the Place of bis Suffering.

ND they took Jefus, [M] and after that they had MOCKED him, they took [Mr.] the PURPLE ROBE off from him, [M.] and put his own Raiment on him, and LED him away to CRUCIFY [Mr.] him : [7] And he BEARING his CROSS, went forth. [L.] And as they led him away, [M] they found a Man, [Mr.] one Simon, a Cyrenean, who paffed by, coming out of the Country, the Father of Alexander and Rufus: [L.] and they laid hold on Simon the Cyrenean, [M.] him they compelled, [L] and on him they laid the CROSS, that he might bear it after fefus. And there followed him a great Company of People, and of Women, which alfo bewailed and LAMENTED him. But Jefus turning unto them, faid, Daughters of Ferufalem, WEEP not for me, but WEEP for your felves, and for your Children; for behold, the Days are coming, in the which they fhall fay, Bleffed are the Barren, and the Wombs that never bare, and the Paps which never gave fuck. Then fhall they begin to fay to the MOUNTAINS, FALL on us; and to the Hills, COVER us. For if they do thefe Things in a green TREE, what fhall be done in the DRY? And there were alfo two other Malefactors, led with him to be put to Death.

CHRIST is Crucified. Wine mingled with Myrrh is given him to drink.

[M]AND when they were come to a Place called Golgotha, [Mr.] which is, being 'interpreted, the Place of a Skull, they gave him to drink Wine mingled with Myrrh; [M.] Vinegar mingled with Gall: [Mr.] But he received it not: for [M] when he had tafted thereof, he would not drink. [L.] And when they were come to the Place which is called Calvary, there they CRUCIFIED him, [F] and two other [Z] Malefactors [7] with him, [L] one on the right Hand, and the other on the left, [7] and Fefus in the midft. [Mr.] And it was the THIRD Hour when they CRUCIFIED him. And [M.] then [Mr.] with him they crucified two Thieves; the one on his right Hand, and the other on his left. And the SCRIPTURE was FULFILLED, which. faith, And he was numbred with the TRANSGRESSORS.


CHRIST prays for his Murderers. The Title writ ten on the Crofs. The Divifion of his Garments.


'HEN faid Jefus, Father, FORGIVE them, for they know not what they DO. [7] And Pilate wrote a Title, and put it on the Crofs: [M] And they fet up over his HEAD, his Accufation written : [Mr.] And his Accufation was written [L.] over him, in Letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. [7] Then said the Chief Priests of the Jews to Pilate, write not, The King of the Jews, but that he faid, I am the King of the Jews. Filate anfwered, What I have written, I have written. Then the Soldiers, when they had CRUCIFIED Jefus, took his Garments, (and made four Parts, to every Soldier a Part) and alfo his Coat: [L.] And they PARTED his RAIMENT, and caft Lors [Mr.Jupon them, what every Man fhould take. [7] Now the Coat was without Seam, woven from the Top throughout;
